(GER: Eines Tages…)
The fates of three families cross at the counselling center for dementia patients. Brother Leon and sister Annette must confront the increasing severity of their mother’s illness and the fact that she can no longer live on her own. Frieder is an architect and has noticed that he is having difficulty with his memory. Despite his condition worsening, his pride prevents him from telling anyone until both his marriage and friendships threaten to be irreparably destroyed that he accepts help. Margot, on the other hand, has lived with her parents and their dementia for ages and has dedicated her life to caring for them. But as their conditions grow increasingly severe, she has to learn how to let them go.
